Slovakia to help build gastroenterology centre in Kabul

A gastroenterological centre is going to be built in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, from the sources of official Slovak development aid.

A gastroenterological centre is going to be built in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, from the sources of official Slovak development aid.

Project manager Hamid Omed of the People of Good Will Association told the SITA newswire that the centre is going to be part of the Wazir Akbar Khan hospital, where required premises are going to be renovated. Subsequently, modern diagnostic equipment will be supplied to Afghanistan in the fall, which is going to help in precise diagnostics of digestive tract illnesses. The project also includes training of two doctors, a nurse and staff to look after equipment maintenance.

The Wazir Akbar Khan hospital in Kabul is a state-run facility build in the 1970s with the help of former Czechoslovakia. Omed explained that they decided for this project, as Afghan health care centres lack equipment for quality diagnostics. At present, there is only one gastroenterological centre in Kabul, which has a population of six million. Project costs, for which the Slovak Agency for International Development Aid provided a subsidy, exceed Sk5.365 million. The diagnostic equipment itself costs around Sk3 million. SITA
